KAILUA (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Kailua woman who's massive collection of Barbie dolls won her international fame has died.
79-year-old Florence Delos Santos-Marton was first featured in the National Enquirer in 1989. She was believed to have had the largest Barbie collection in the world: 924 dolls.
Today her collection is up to 10-thousand. So many people wanted to see her dolls that her husband built an extension for her garage and she turned it into a museum.
Santos-Martin said she never had a favorite although one first-edition doll was worth 10-thousand dollars.
Santos-Marton died after a battle with Cancer.
Her family says her collection will now be passed on to one of her siblings.
